Desecrated Tomb Discussion

I definitely cut:

Tenacious Dead (unless there's a combo I'm missing) Diregraf Colossus (I don't think there are enough zombies here) Captivating Crew (I tried this in a couple sac decks, but the 4 was just way too much.) Desecrated Tomb (bats seem low impact) Bone Splinters Murder Rend Flesh (You have a lot more single target removal spells than I generally like to run, though that's partially personal preference) Warstorm Surge/Impact Tremors (I might be missing a combo with these, though)

I'd probably cut:

Both Squees. I think they're too slow. Harvester of Souls Nim Deathmantle (unless you want to combo off) Aftershock

I'd suggest: Greater Gargadon Talisman of Indulgence (way better than the diamonds) Goblin Bombardment Yahenni, Undying Partisan Dark Prophecy

Hey kudos for going all in on the Lich Queen. I am also planning on building her.

Just wanted to let you know one of your combos doesn't work. Desecrated Tomb reads "whenever one or more... put "A" 1/1 bat... In other words if you remove 20 creatures from your yard all at once you still only get 1 bat.

Desecrated tomb works much better with ways to repeatedly remove 1 creature at a time. like Phyrexian Reclamation and the like.

Doom Whisperer seems very powerful. With Gaea's Blessing, lifegain and Desecrated Tomb, you can do some nasty things.

What about Desecrated Tomb and Open the Graves? Things will go in the graveyard and come back out so it sends like it'd be worth having

Skyscanner and Desecrated Tomb look like important additions to an artifact/token theme Shirei deck. Skittering Surveyor seems handy too. If/when I come back to playing, that's definitely what this is going to turn into.

Going back to Ixalan also gives me Pitiless Plunderer (thanks shub!) Gleaming Barrier is also great mana and (non-creature) artifact token creation, Dusk Legion Zealot has great potential but it's risky if you use it too often.

I'm hoping for something good in mono-black with Undergrowth from Ravnica, but we'll wait and see.

Alright, it seems the deck is a bit top heavy. Here are my suggestions. I have structured this rework of the deck to sac and get the mana out quick till you can have Meren stay on the board long enough or just hard cast the big things. You don't have to take my suggestions but I highly insist that this will make her work again.

Take out Nirkana Revenant for Satyr Wayfinder

Take out Hermit Druid for Ravenous Chupacabra

Take out Demon of Catastrophes for Viridian Zealot

Take out Razaketh, the Foulblooded for Viridian Emissary

Take out Plague Wind for Wall of Blossoms

Take out Doomgape for Bontu the Glorified

Take out Ruinous Path for Vindictive Lich

Take out Altar of Dementia for Dawntreader Elk

Take out Necropotence for Wood Elves

Take out Deadbridge Chant for Merciless Executioner

Take out The Gitrog Monster for Slum Reaper

Take out Yahenni, Undying Partisan for Diabolic Intent

Take out Voldaren Pariah  Flip for Damnation

Take out Lord of Extinction for Whiptongue Hydra

Take out Stitch Together for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Temple of the False God for Swamp

Take out Vivid Marsh for Swamp

Take out Vivid Grove for Forest

Take out Slippery Karst for Forest

Take out Polluted Mire for Forest

Take out Desecrated Tomb for Forest

Take out Golgari Guildgate for Forest

joaoguaxinim thank you for the suggestions! I put a couple Reassembling Skeleton into the mainboard, but couldn't see Bone Dragon as a good enough creature. He's generally just too slow, and to be honest, kind of bad. However, I did add two Rise from the Grave and a Desecrated Tomb into the sideboard for big creature decks and graveyard hate. I also added in two Stitcher's Supplier, as I agree that it will be a good engine for Lili.

You could go zombies + skeletons to benefit from baron's text. I could see Reassembling Skeleton and Bone Dragon entering your deck. also, Rise from the Grave can be a good card in your 75, benefiting from killing your op creatures and getting them back +1+1 and deathtouch can be devasting. Not to mention Stitcher's Supplier that can feed your gy to a liliana's ult or to get value via Marshal/Dragon. Also, you could use Desecrated Tomb on your sideboard against GY hate for game 2.
